HANDSPRING, INC.


                        2000 EMPLOYEE STOCK PURCHASE PLAN


                           As Adopted April 26, 2000



         1. ESTABLISHMENT OF PLAN. Handspring, Inc. (the "COMPANY") proposes to
grant options for purchase of the Company's Common Stock to eligible employees
of the Company and its Participating Subsidiaries (as hereinafter defined)
pursuant to this Employee Stock Purchase Plan (this "PLAN"). For purposes of
this Plan, "PARENT CORPORATION" and "SUBSIDIARY" shall have the same meanings as
"parent corporation" and "subsidiary corporation" in Sections 424(e) and 424(f),
respectively, of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "CODE").
"PARTICIPATING SUBSIDIARIES" are Parent Corporations or Subsidiaries that the
Board of Directors of the Company (the "BOARD") designates from time to time as
corporations that shall participate in this Plan. The Company intends this Plan
to qualify as an "employee stock purchase plan" under Section 423 of the Code
(including any amendments to or replacements of such Section), and this Plan
shall be so construed. Any term not expressly defined in this Plan but defined
for purposes of Section 423 of the Code shall have the same definition herein. A
total of 750,000(1) shares of the Company's Common Stock is reserved for
issuance under this Plan. In addition, on each January 1, the aggregate number
of shares of the Company's Common Stock reserved for issuance under the Plan
shall be increased automatically by a number of shares equal to 1% of the total
number of outstanding shares of the Company Common Stock on the immediately
preceding December 31; provided, that the Board or the Committee may in its sole
discretion reduce the amount of the increase in any particular year; and,
provided further, that the aggregate number of shares issued over the term of
this Plan shall not exceed 22,500,000 shares. Such number shall be subject to
adjustments effected in accordance with Section 14 of this Plan.


         2. PURPOSE. The purpose of this Plan is to provide eligible employees
of the Company and Participating Subsidiaries with a convenient means of
acquiring an equity interest in the Company through payroll deductions, to
enhance such employees' sense of participation in the affairs of the Company and
Participating Subsidiaries, and to provide an incentive for continued
employment.


         3. ADMINISTRATION. This Plan shall be administered by the Compensation
Committee of the Board (the "COMMITTEE"). Subject to the provisions of this Plan
and the limitations of Section 423 of the Code or any successor provision in the
Code, all questions of interpretation or application of this Plan shall be
determined by the Committee and its decisions shall be final and binding upon
all participants. Members of the Committee shall receive no compensation for
their services in connection with the administration of this Plan, other than
standard fees as established from time to time by the Board for services
rendered by Board members serving on Board committees. All expenses incurred in
connection with the administration of this Plan shall be paid by the Company.


         4. ELIGIBILITY. Any employee of the Company or the Participating
Subsidiaries is eligible to participate in an Offering Period (as hereinafter
defined) under this Plan except the following:


                  (a) employees who are not employed by the Company or a
Participating Subsidiary prior to the beginning of such Offering Period or prior
to such other time period as specified by the Committee, except that employees
who are employed on the Effective Date of the Registration Statement filed by
the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") under the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "SECURITIES ACT") registering the
initial public offering of the Company's Common Stock shall be eligible to
participate in the first Offering Period under the Plan;


                  (b) employees who are customarily employed for twenty (20)
hours or less per week;


                  (c) employees who are customarily employed for five (5) months
or less in a calendar year;


(1) Pursuant to the resolutions under which the Plan was adopted, this number
    reflects the 3-for-2 stock split which became effective in May 2000.

                                                                Handspring, Inc.
                                               2000 Employee Stock Purchase Plan


                  (d) employees who, together with any other person whose stock
would be attributed to such employee pursuant to Section 424(d) of the Code, own
stock or hold options to purchase stock possessing five percent (5%) or more of
the total combined voting power or value of all classes of stock of the Company
or any of its Participating Subsidiaries or who, as a result of being granted an
option under this Plan with respect to such Offering Period, would own stock or
hold options to purchase stock possessing five percent (5%) or more of the total
combined voting power or value of all classes of stock of the Company or any of
its Participating Subsidiaries; and


                  (e) individuals who provide services to the Company or any of
its Participating Subsidiaries as independent contractors who are reclassified
as common law employees for any reason except for federal income and employment
tax purposes.


         5. OFFERING DATES. The offering periods of this Plan (each, an
"OFFERING PERIOD") shall be of twenty-four (24) months duration commencing on
February 1 and August 1 of each year and ending on January 31 and July 31 of
each year; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, the first such
Offering Period shall commence on the first business day on which price
quotations for the Company's Common Stock are available on the Nasdaq National
Market (the "FIRST OFFERING DATE") and shall end on July 31, 2002. Except for
the first Offering Period, each Offering Period shall consist of four (4) six
month purchase periods (individually, a "PURCHASE PERIOD") during which payroll
deductions of the participants are accumulated under this Plan. The first
Offering Period shall consist of no more than five and no fewer than three
Purchase Periods, any of which may be greater or less than six months as
determined by the Committee. The first business day of each Offering Period is
referred to as the "OFFERING DATE". The last business day of each Purchase
Period is referred to as the "PURCHASE DATE". The Committee shall have the power
to change the Offering Dates, the Purchase Dates and the duration of Offering
Periods or Purchase Periods without stockholder approval if such change is
announced prior to the relevant Offering Period, or prior to such other time
period as specified by the Committee.


         6. PARTICIPATION IN THIS PLAN. Eligible employees may become
participants in an Offering Period under this Plan on the first Offering Date
after satisfying the eligibility requirements by delivering a subscription
agreement to the Company prior to such Offering Date, or such other time period
as specified by the Committee. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Committee may
set a later time for filing the subscription agreement authorizing payroll
deductions for all eligible employees with respect to a given Offering Period.
An eligible employee who does not deliver a subscription agreement to the
Company by such date after becoming eligible to participate in such Offering
Period shall not participate in that Offering Period or any subsequent Offering
Period unless such employee enrolls in this Plan by filing a subscription
agreement with the Company prior to such Offering Date, or such other time
period as specified by the Committee. Once an employee becomes a participant in
an Offering Period, such employee will automatically participate in the Offering
Period commencing immediately following the last day of the prior Offering
Period unless the employee withdraws or is deemed to withdraw from this Plan or
terminates further participation in the Offering Period as set forth in Section
11 below. Such participant is not required to file any additional subscription
agreement in order to continue participation in this Plan.


         7. GRANT OF OPTION ON ENROLLMENT. Enrollment by an eligible employee in
this Plan with respect to an Offering Period will constitute the grant (as of
the Offering Date) by the Company to such employee of an option to purchase on
the Purchase Date up to that number of shares of Common Stock of the Company
determined by dividing (a) the amount accumulated in such employee's payroll
deduction account during such Purchase Period by (b) the lower of (i)
eighty-five percent (85%) of the fair market value of a share of the Company's
Common Stock on the Offering Date (but in no event less than the par value of a
share of the Company's Common Stock), or (ii) eighty-five percent (85%) of the
fair market value of a share of the Company's Common Stock on the Purchase Date
(but in no event less than the par value of a share of the Company's Common
Stock), provided, however, that the number of shares of the Company's Common
Stock subject to any option granted pursuant to this Plan shall not exceed the
lesser of (x) the maximum number of shares set by the Committee pursuant to
Section 10(c) below with respect to the applicable Purchase Date, or (y) the
maximum number of shares which may be purchased pursuant to Section 10(b) below
with respect to the applicable Purchase Date. The fair market value of a share
of the Company's Common Stock shall be determined as provided in Section 8
below.

                                                                Handspring, Inc.
                                               2000 Employee Stock Purchase Plan

         8. PURCHASE PRICE. The purchase price per share at which a share of
Common Stock will be sold in any Offering Period shall be eighty-five percent
(85%) of the lesser of:

                  (a)  The fair market value on the Offering Date; or

                  (b)  The fair market value on the Purchase Date.

                  For purposes of this Plan, the term "FAIR MARKET VALUE" means,
as of any date, the value of a share of the Company's Common Stock determined as
follows:

                  (a) if such Common Stock is then quoted on the Nasdaq National
Market, its closing price on the Nasdaq National Market on the date of
determination as reported in The Wall Street Journal;

                  (b) if such Common Stock is publicly traded and is then listed
on a national securities exchange, its closing price on the date of
determination on the principal national securities exchange on which the Common
Stock is listed or admitted to trading as reported in The Wall Street Journal;

                  (c) if such Common Stock is publicly traded but is not quoted
on the Nasdaq National Market nor listed or admitted to trading on a national
securities exchange, the average of the closing bid and asked prices on the date
of determination as reported in The Wall Street Journal; or

                  (d) if none of the foregoing is applicable, by the Board in
good faith, which in the case of the First Offering Date will be the price per
share at which shares of the Company's Common Stock are initially offered for
sale to the public by the Company's underwriters in the initial public offering
of the Company's Common Stock pursuant to a registration statement filed with
the SEC under the Securities Act.

         9. PAYMENT OF PURCHASE PRICE; CHANGES IN PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS; ISSUANCE
OF SHARES.

                  (a) The purchase price of the shares is accumulated by regular
payroll deductions made during each Offering Period. The deductions are made as
a percentage of the participant's compensation in one percent (1%) increments
not less than one percent (1%), nor greater than ten percent (10%) or such lower
or higher limit set by the Committee but not to exceed fifteen percent (15%).
Compensation shall mean all W-2 cash compensation, including, but not limited
to, base salary, wages, commissions, overtime, shift premiums and bonuses, plus
draws against commissions, provided, however, that for purposes of determining a
participant's compensation, any election by such participant to reduce his or
her regular cash remuneration under Sections 125 or 401(k) of the Code shall be
treated as if the participant did not make such election. Payroll deductions
shall commence on the first payday of the Offering Period and shall continue to
the end of the Offering Period unless sooner altered or terminated as provided
in this Plan.

                  (b) A participant may increase or decrease the rate of payroll
deductions during an Offering Period by filing with the Company a new
authorization for payroll deductions, in which case the new rate shall become
effective for the next payroll period commencing after the Company's receipt of
the authorization and shall continue for the remainder of the Offering Period
unless changed as described below. Such change in the rate of payroll deductions
may be made at any time during an Offering Period, but not more than one (1)
change may be made effective during any Purchase Period. A participant may
increase or decrease the rate of payroll deductions for any subsequent Offering
Period by filing with the Company a new authorization for payroll deductions
prior to the beginning of such Offering Period, or prior to such other time
period as specified by the Committee.

                  (c) A participant may reduce his or her payroll deduction
percentage to zero during an Offering Period by filing with the Company a
request for cessation of payroll deductions. Such reduction shall be effective
beginning with the next payroll period after the Company's receipt of the
request and no further payroll deductions will be made for the duration of the
Offering Period. Payroll deductions credited to the participant's account prior
to the effective date of the request shall be used to purchase shares of Common
Stock of the Company in accordance with Section (e) below. A participant may not
resume making payroll deductions during the Offering Period in which he or she
reduced his or her payroll deductions to zero.

                                                                Handspring, Inc.
                                               2000 Employee Stock Purchase Plan


                  (d) All payroll deductions made for a participant are credited
to his or her account under this Plan and are deposited with the general funds
of the Company. No interest accrues on the payroll deductions. All payroll
deductions received or held by the Company may be used by the Company for any
corporate purpose, and the Company shall not be obligated to segregate such
payroll deductions.


                  (e) On each Purchase Date, so long as this Plan remains in
effect and provided that the participant has not submitted a signed and
completed withdrawal form before that date which notifies the Company that the
participant wishes to withdraw from that Offering Period under this Plan and
have all payroll deductions accumulated in the account maintained on behalf of
the participant as of that date returned to the participant, the Company shall
apply the funds then in the participant's account to the purchase of whole
shares of Common Stock reserved under the option granted to such participant
with respect to the Offering Period to the extent that such option is
exercisable on the Purchase Date. The purchase price per share shall be as
specified in Section 8 of this Plan. Any cash remaining in a participant's
account after such purchase of shares shall be refunded to such participant in
cash, without interest; provided, however that any amount remaining in such
participant's account on a Purchase Date which is less than the amount necessary
to purchase a full share of Common Stock of the Company shall be carried
forward, without interest, into the next Purchase Period or Offering Period, as
the case may be. In the event that this Plan has been oversubscribed, all funds
not used to purchase shares on the Purchase Date shall be returned to the
participant, without interest. No Common Stock shall be purchased on a Purchase
Date on behalf of any employee whose participation in this Plan has terminated
prior to such Purchase Date.


                  (f) As promptly as practicable after the Purchase Date, the
Company shall issue shares for the participant's benefit representing the shares
purchased upon exercise of his or her option.


                  (g) During a participant's lifetime, his or her option to
purchase shares hereunder is exercisable only by him or her. The participant
will have no interest or voting right in shares covered by his or her option
until such option has been exercised.


         10. LIMITATIONS ON SHARES TO BE PURCHASED.


                  (a) No participant shall be entitled to purchase stock under
this Plan at a rate which, when aggregated with his or her rights to purchase
stock under all other employee stock purchase plans of the Company or any
Subsidiary, exceeds $25,000 in fair market value, determined as of the Offering
Date (or such other limit as may be imposed by the Code) for each calendar year
in which the employee participates in this Plan. The Company shall automatically
suspend the payroll deductions of any participant as necessary to enforce such
limit provided that when the Company automatically resumes such payroll
deductions, the Company must apply the rate in effect immediately prior to such
suspension.


                  (b) No more than two hundred percent (200%) of the number of
shares determined by using eighty-five percent (85%) of the fair market value of
a share of the Company's Common Stock on the Offering Date as the denominator
may be purchased by a participant on any single Purchase Date.


                  (c) No participant shall be entitled to purchase more than the
Maximum Share Amount (as defined below) on any single Purchase Date. Prior to
the commencement of any Offering Period or prior to such time period as
specified by the Committee, the Committee may, in its sole discretion, set a
maximum number of shares which may be purchased by any employee at any single
Purchase Date (hereinafter the "MAXIMUM SHARE AMOUNT"). Until otherwise
determined by the Committee, there shall be no Maximum Share Amount. In no event
shall the Maximum Share Amount exceed the amounts permitted under Section 10(b)
above. If a new Maximum Share Amount is set, then all participants must be
notified of such Maximum Share Amount prior to the commencement of the next
Offering Period. The Maximum Share Amount shall continue to apply with respect
to all succeeding Purchase Dates and Offering Periods unless revised by the
Committee as set forth above.


                  (d) If the number of shares to be purchased on a Purchase Date
by all employees participating in this Plan exceeds the number of shares then
available for issuance under this Plan, then the Company will make a

                                       4
<PAGE>   5
                                                                Handspring, Inc.
                                               2000 Employee Stock Purchase Plan


pro rata allocation of the remaining shares in as uniform a manner as shall be
reasonably practicable and as the Committee shall determine to be equitable. In
such event, the Company shall give written notice of such reduction of the
number of shares to be purchased under a participant's option to each
participant affected.


                  (e) Any payroll deductions accumulated in a participant's
account which are not used to purchase stock due to the limitations in this
Section 10 shall be returned to the participant as soon as practicable after the
end of the applicable Purchase Period, without interest.


         11. WITHDRAWAL.


                  (a) Each participant may withdraw from an Offering Period
under this Plan by signing and delivering to the Company a written notice to
that effect on a form provided for such purpose. Such withdrawal may be elected
at any time prior to the end of an Offering Period, or such other time period as
specified by the Committee.


                  (b) Upon withdrawal from this Plan, the accumulated payroll
deductions shall be returned to the withdrawn participant, without interest, and
his or her interest in this Plan shall terminate. In the event a participant
voluntarily elects to withdraw from this Plan, he or she may not resume his or
her participation in this Plan during the same Offering Period, but he or she
may participate in any Offering Period under this Plan which commences on a date
subsequent to such withdrawal by filing a new authorization for payroll
deductions in the same manner as set forth in Section 6 above for initial
participation in this Plan.


                  (c) If the Fair Market Value on the first day of the current
Offering Period in which a participant is enrolled is higher than the Fair
Market Value on the first day of any subsequent Offering Period, the Company
will automatically enroll such participant in the subsequent Offering Period.
Any funds accumulated in a participant's account prior to the first day of such
subsequent Offering Period will be applied to the purchase of shares on the
Purchase Date immediately prior to the first day of such subsequent Offering
Period, if any.


         12. TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT. Termination of a participant's
employment for any reason, including retirement, death or the failure of a
participant to remain an eligible employee of the Company or of a Participating
Subsidiary, immediately terminates his or her participation in this Plan. In
such event, the payroll deductions credited to the participant's account will be
returned to him or her or, in the case of his or her death, to his or her legal
representative, without interest. For purposes of this Section 12, an employee
will not be deemed to have terminated employment or failed to remain in the
continuous employ of the Company or of a Participating Subsidiary in the case of
sick leave, military leave, or any other leave of absence approved by the Board;
provided that such leave is for a period of not more than ninety (90) days or
reemployment upon the expiration of such leave is guaranteed by contract or
statute.


         13. RETURN OF PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS. In the event a participant's interest
in this Plan is terminated by withdrawal, termination of employment or
otherwise, or in the event this Plan is terminated by the Board, the Company
shall deliver to the participant all payroll deductions credited to such
participant's account. No interest shall accrue on the payroll deductions of a
participant in this Plan.


         14. CAPITAL CHANGES. Subject to any required action by the stockholders
of the Company, the number of shares of Common Stock covered by each option
under this Plan which has not yet been exercised and the number of shares of
Common Stock which have been authorized for issuance under this Plan but have
not yet been placed under option (collectively, the "RESERVES"), as well as the
price per share of Common Stock covered by each option under this Plan which has
not yet been exercised, shall be proportionately adjusted for any increase or
decrease in the number of issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock of the
Company resulting from a stock split or the payment of a stock dividend (but
only on the Common Stock) or any other increase or decrease in the number of
issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock effected without receipt of any
consideration by the Company; provided, however, that conversion of any
convertible securities of the Company shall not be deemed to have been "effected
without receipt of consideration". Such adjustment shall be made by the
Committee, whose determination shall be final, binding and conclusive. Except as
expressly provided herein, no issue by the Company of shares of stock of any
class, or securities convertible into shares of stock of any class, shall
affect, and no


                                       5
<PAGE>   6
                                                                Handspring, Inc.
                                               2000 Employee Stock Purchase Plan


adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with respect to, the number or price
of shares of Common Stock subject to an option.


                  In the event of the proposed dissolution or liquidation of the
Company, the Offering Period will terminate immediately prior to the
consummation of such proposed action, unless otherwise provided by the
Committee. The Committee may, in the exercise of its sole discretion in such
instances, declare that this Plan shall terminate as of a date fixed by the
Committee and give each participant the right to purchase shares under this Plan
prior to such termination. In the event of (i) a merger or consolidation in
which the Company is not the surviving corporation (other than a merger or
consolidation with a wholly-owned subsidiary, a reincorporation of the Company
in a different jurisdiction, or other transaction in which there is no
substantial change in the stockholders of the Company or their relative stock
holdings and the options under this Plan are assumed, converted or replaced by
the successor corporation, which assumption will be binding on all
participants), (ii) a merger in which the Company is the surviving corporation
but after which the stockholders of the Company immediately prior to such merger
(other than any stockholder that merges, or which owns or controls another
corporation that merges, with the Company in such merger) cease to own their
shares or other equity interest in the Company, (iii) the sale of all or
substantially all of the assets of the Company or (iv) the acquisition, sale, or
transfer of more than 50% of the outstanding shares of the Company by tender
offer or similar transaction, the Plan will continue with regard to Offering
Periods that commenced prior to the closing of the proposed transaction and
shares will be purchased based on the Fair Market Value of the surviving
corporation's stock on each Purchase Date, unless otherwise provided by the
Committee consistent with pooling of interests accounting treatment.


                  The Committee may, if it so determines in the exercise of its
sole discretion, also make provision for adjusting the Reserves, as well as the
price per share of Common Stock covered by each outstanding option, in the event
that the Company effects one or more reorganizations, recapitalizations, rights
offerings or other increases or reductions of shares of its outstanding Common
Stock, or in the event of the Company being consolidated with or merged into any
other corporation.


         15. NONASSIGNABILITY. Neither payroll deductions credited to a
participant's account nor any rights with regard to the exercise of an option or
to receive shares under this Plan may be assigned, transferred, pledged or
otherwise disposed of in any way (other than by will, the laws of descent and
distribution or as provided in Section 22 below) by the participant. Any such
attempt at assignment, transfer, pledge or other disposition shall be void and
without effect.


         16. REPORTS. Individual accounts will be maintained for each
participant in this Plan. Each participant shall receive promptly after the end
of each Purchase Period a report of his or her account setting forth the total
payroll deductions accumulated, the number of shares purchased, the per share
price thereof and the remaining cash balance, if any, carried forward to the
next Purchase Period or Offering Period, as the case may be.


         17. NOTICE OF DISPOSITION. Each participant shall notify the Company in
writing if the participant disposes of any of the shares purchased in any
Offering Period pursuant to this Plan if such disposition occurs within two (2)
years from the Offering Date or within one (1) year from the Purchase Date on
which such shares were purchased (the "NOTICE PERIOD"). The Company may, at any
time during the Notice Period, place a legend or legends on any certificate
representing shares acquired pursuant to this Plan requesting the Company's
transfer agent to notify the Company of any transfer of the shares. The
obligation of the participant to provide such notice shall continue
notwithstanding the placement of any such legend on the certificates.


         18. NO RIGHTS TO CONTINUED EMPLOYMENT. Neither this Plan nor the grant
of any option hereunder shall confer any right on any employee to remain in the
employ of the Company or any Participating Subsidiary, or restrict the right of
the Company or any Participating Subsidiary to terminate such employee's
employment.


         19. EQUAL RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES. All eligible employees shall have
equal rights and privileges with respect to this Plan so that this Plan
qualifies as an "employee stock purchase plan" within the meaning of Section 423
or any successor provision of the Code and the related regulations. Any
provision of this Plan which is inconsistent with Section 423 or any successor
provision of the Code shall, without further act or amendment by the

                                       6
<PAGE>   7
                                                                Handspring, Inc.
                                               2000 Employee Stock Purchase Plan


Company, the Committee or the Board, be reformed to comply with the requirements
of Section 423. This Section 19 shall take precedence over all other provisions
in this Plan.


         20. NOTICES. All notices or other communications by a participant to
the Company under or in connection with this Plan shall be deemed to have been
duly given when received in the form specified by the Company at the location,
or by the person, designated by the Company for the receipt thereof.


         21. TERM; STOCKHOLDER APPROVAL. After this Plan is adopted by the
Board, this Plan will become effective on the First Offering Date (as defined
above). This Plan shall be approved by the stockholders of the Company, in any
